Fundraise for Southlake



Meet Jennifer: In 2010, Southlake MRI technologist,
Jennifer V., a mother of three young children, found a golf ball-sized lump in her breast. With the use of MRI, doctors confirmed that even though the tumor was half the size of Jennifer’s breast, it had been caught before it spread to other areas. One month after her diagnosis, Jennifer had a double mastectomy, and she returned to work a short time later.


Meet Lorie: For almost two years, Lorie S. experienced a painful buildup of fluid in her abdomen caused by several cancerous tumors. She made weekly trips to Southlake’s Interventional Radiology Suite to receive a minimally invasive procedure called paracentesis. At each visit, as much as eight litres of fluid was drained from Lorie’s abdomen, bringing immediate relief and allowing her to move around without pain.

Thanks to the technology and expertise available at Southlake, Jennifer is a cancer survivor and Lorie can play with her grandchildren.

Their stories are the ones we celebrate. But for others, their stories are much different.

That’s why we’ve made redevelopment of our Diagnostic Imaging services a top priority.

Over the next five years, more than 1.5 million patients will come through Southlake’s doors. Chances are you’ll know some of them. Chances are many will be facing the toughest battles of their lives. One thing is for certain: they are counting on Southlake to help. We urge you to give generously, to give them a chance for their stories, like Jennifer’s and Lorie’s, to have a happy ending.
